Colorado Lands Liufau

Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep quarterback Sefo Liufau made the decision to commit to Colorado after his unofficial visit to Boulder last week…

The Colorado coaching staff landed one of the top quarterbacks in the Northwest this past weekend, when Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep athlete Sefo Liufau made his decision. The commitment had been in the works since Liufau's unofficial visit to Boulder earlier in the week.

"It wasn't on my trip, I came home and thought about it for a couple days," said Liufau. "I talked to my parents about it and I called Colorado on Friday."

"The coaches were really happy and excited," said Liufau. "They said they were happy to have me as part of the family, as am I."

Just before his visit, Liufau had he stated he would likely wait to make his choice. He talked about what changed his mind.

"There were multiple things… I went in with an open stance, not thinking about committing," said Liufau. "The staff was welcoming. I talked to the administrators and there are a lot of similarities from my school. The fans are right on the field at the stadium and we run a similar offense."

"It's the second year for the coaching staff, they are building up a squad," said Liufau. "It is important for me to take my faith with me and they do Catholic services for players before the game if you want."

It was the first trip to Boulder for the 6'4" 219lbs quarterback and he liked everything he saw.

"They took me all over the campus," said Liufau. "It's a college city, at the heart of town. Denver is only 30 minutes away if you want to go to a Broncos game or something. There is a bunch to do, it is also a safe place and my parents liked that."

The process is over for Liufau, who feels some relief mixed in with his excitement.

"I definitely feel like something has come off my shoulders," said Liufau. "I will still have some schools trying to talk to me, but I just want to focus on my senior season."
